Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

>> It helps to have a map. Not everyone is capable of advanced cartography. <<

One nice thing is that many of those who are are busy putting theirs out where people who'd like a better map than they can draw themselves can pick one up. It's not yet where I'd like it to be, where someone who realizes they need a map can find one that suits them best, but it's moving in that direction. And when I see someone who's struggling to find their way, map or no map, I like to offer to help.

>> Yes, there will be clusters above and below the line usually. <<

And sometimes the line isn't horizontal, or even much of a line. Sort of like the islands in many large rivers forming governmental boundaries, where which "side" they are on can be constantly open to interpretation.

>> Do the basics first, then iterate from there. I just came in at the iterate phase, after you filled in the baseline. <<

That worked fine in context, and is a good point.

Maps and menus and momentum, oh my! :D

That's true. Gender is complicated.
